A Dozen CJ-6s Expected at AirVenture 2018

June 21, 2018 - Up to 15 Nanchang CJ-6s are expected to be in attendance at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2018. The CJ-6s will participate in a mass arrival on Monday, July 23 during AirVenture, in addition to performing formation flights during the daily air shows.

Dan Booker, EAA 790516, who is organizing the CJ-6 gathering in Oshkosh, said the CJ-6 is a similar design to the Yak-52.

“It has a slightly bigger cockpit, carries more fuel, and only lacks slightly in the aerobatic capability compared to the Yak,” Dan said. “The CJ is a great entry warbird.”

More information on the CJ-6 is available on the RedStar Pilots Association website and in person at the RedStar tent in the Warbirds area during AirVenture.
